In the shadow of the Chicago skyline, in a humble Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL, Tessa Blanchard and Mercedes Martinez battled tooth and nail in a 75 Minute Iron Woman Match, setting a record for the longest women’s professional wrestling match in history. This was advertised to be a 60 Minute Iron Woman Match. Just moments before fans were let into the building,  Executive Producers Kevin Harvey and Jimmy Jacobs announced live on Twitter the time limit had been extended and a new world record would be set in the Main Event of RISE 10 – INSANITY.

Results from RISE 10 – INSANITY, now available for $9.99 Digital Download at riseascent.com and DVD and Blu-ray of The Live Edit are available for $10 at pipeline.ecwid.com:

Karen Q defeated Kimber Lee

Jessicka Havok, Nevaeh, Allysin Kay and Dynamite DiDi defeated Alex Gracia, Myka, Layne Rosario and Nikki Victory in a 4-on-4 Tag Team Elimination Match.

Queen vs. Queen – Jinny defeated Madison Rayne

Cheerleader Melissa and Rain banded together to co-win their Triple Threat Match against Double D Rose

Bones of Contention (Karen Q and Ray Lyn) defeated Colt Cabana and RJ City with David Arquette and “welcomed” David Arquette to the rings of RISE after the match.

Paradise Lost (Raven’s Ash and Dust) with Rosemary retained The Guardians of RISE Tag Team Championships in a brutal Rosemary’s Rules match against Balls of DOOM (Shotzi Blackheart and Delilah Doom). After the match, Paradise was poised to enact potentially career-ending injuries to Shotzi Blackheart. Delilah Doom, after nearly two years of torment at the hand of Rosemary, willingly surrendered herself to the Shadow to save her friend Shotzi Blackheart.

In the Main Event of the evening, Mercedes Martinez defeated Tessa Blanchard in a 75 Minute Iron Woman match to become The Fifth Phoenix of RISE Champion.

We have received many inquiries the last two weeks asking specifically if RISE 10 – INSANITY will be streamed live Friday, October 19. For reasons we cannot fully discuss, we are unable to stream this particular event live due to the unique combination of talent we have assembled for this card.

However…

We will have the full Live Event of RISE 10 – INSANITY available for purchase through riseascent.com and our Apps on iOS and Android nearly immediately following the conclusion of the Main Event. We will be uploading a Live Edit of RISE 10 including commentary before we leaving the Berwyn Eagles Club. This Live Edit will be available for purchase for $9.99.

Within a few days, a full, post-produced edit will be available, including a more detailed edit of the Live Event and all backstage interviews and vignettes filmed throughout the day, telling the most complete story of RISE 10 – INSANITY will be available through riseascent.com and our Apps on iOS and Android. This version of RISE 10 will also be available on DVD and Blu-ray through pipeline.ecwid.com and smartmarkvideo.com.

With the matches already announced and several not yet finalized, we fully expect fans and industry insiders to consider this event “can’t-miss.” We are making every effort possible to bring this to fans worldwide in the most timely manner given live streaming or broadcast is not an option.

The Live Edit will not be included in the RISE – ASCENT monthly subscription, however, the final, complete edit will be in time.

We are looking to make a big noise and turn some heads this Friday in Berwyn, IL! If you want to see it LIVE, act fast. If you can get to Chicago, we are down to our last few tickets and VIP passes at pipeline.ecwid.com!

David Arquette is unable to appear at RISE 10 – INSANITY this Friday, October 19 in Berwyn, IL. David sends his apologies along with news for RJ City as well as fans in the video above.

A large part of the tumultuous team of Arquette City’s working arrangement centered around David’s promise to RJ of an appearance on a talk show. It would appear from this video David will make good on this promise and has booked RJ City on a talk show that will be happening in the ring at RISE 10.

RJ City will still be competing, but who will the partner be? Who will the opponents be? Many in The Lethal Lottery of Ladies have withdrawn their names with the prospect of getting their hands on David Arquette being off the table. What match will be made in the wake of these changes?

We look forward to finding out the answers to many of these questions at RISE 10!

For fans who purchased VIP Passes that included Photos Ops with David Arquette, RISE is providing the following options and accommodations.

For fans who purchased VIP Option 2: 

You may either substitute Option 1, the in-ring photo op with the stars of RISE. Or, upon request, we will be offering full refunds on Option 2 purchases only.

For fans who purchased VIP Combo:

You may substitute two free individual DVDs or Blu-rays from the merchandise table or one two-disc set. Or, upon request, we will offer a partial refund of $20 on VIP Combo purchases only as the in-ring photo with the stars of RISE will still happen as planned.

If you wish to pursue a refund, please email kevin@wrestlingpipeline.com, Subject VIP Refund.

The last few weeks, we have seen more new content on riseacent.com as well as our Apps on iOS and Android. RISE 8 – OUTBACK and RISE 9 – RISE of The Knockouts quickly became the top streaming videos on the site. We have also seen new content made available by our friends at Rogue Women Warriors and Bar Wrestling this week. We have even seen the newest Episodes of RISE – ASCENT resume with Episode 15 – Feels Like Home.

Today, we announce a new, original program: The Process. In this video series, exclusive to our streaming service, Writers and Executive Producers Jimmy Jacobs and Kevin Harvey take you along their journey in all facets of what goes into the creation of a weekly, episodic platform and how those episodes build to larger scale RISE Live Events. Some installments will be retrospective, others will be filmed during the actual creative process of RISE – ASCENT Episodes and RISE Live Events. This will be an unprecedented behind the scenes look into the tireless work that goes into RISE weeks before fans enter the venue.

In the first installment, we will take a retrospective look at the intense struggles at all levels of RISE 9 – RISE of The Knockouts and subsequent tapings of RISE – ASCENT Episodes 7 – 13. Find out how crunch time decisions were made. Find out what might have happened had injuries not plagued the roster. Find out just how close the company came to closing its doors the week leading into RISE 9 and why.

Later this fall, we look forward to bringing you The Process, Part One – Kicked Out at Two.

As all fans and Seminar attendees of RISE 10 – INSANITY know, SHIMMER Original Rain will be on hand to lend her perspective in Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes. It is also well known Rain will be competing at the Live Event of RISE 10 against an opponent of her choosing from The Prospective Talent Pool. But, there is one small detail that has not been announced until today.

Rain is now part owner of Unify Championship Entertainment, a professional wrestling promotion in Honolulu, Hawaii. And she is coming to RISE 10 to begin scouting female talents to possibly receive future opportunities with UCE!

“Part of what has always made RISE Special for Prospective Talents are not just the immediate opportunities from our Seminars and Live Events, but also those opportunities that may come with networking and time. Rain and I have been in close contact for the last few months, knowing there could be eventual opportunities for women wrestlers in Hawaii. That time will be coming soon, after she scouts talents at RISE 10,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

Women wrestlers, due to cancellations, we have three seats open in our October 19 Seminar with SHIMMER Originals Rain, Mercedes Martinez, Lexie Fyfe and Cheerleader Melissa. Register today at rise-wrestling.com/seminar.
